We are currently looking for anyone who would like to submit a line drawing, 8” X 10”, of local landmarks or something that reminds you of our wonderful Alberni Valley. Anyone can submit a drawing, from children to seniors, and there is no limit on submissions. These line drawings, black and white only, will be juried and published in a colouring book as a fundraiser for the Community Arts Council and the Rollin Art Centre. For more information and an application, stop by the Rollin Art Centre. Submissions will be accepted until Sept. 30.
